The venerable discount tube socks and licensed sports gear chain Modell’s spun into action late this week, stocking their shelves with large quantities of newly manufactured Brett Favre Jets jerseys and t-shirts. “In an era of celebrity worship, instant gratification and express delivery, the arrival of a new player is often accompanied by the nearly simultaneous appearance of his jersey on the racks of sporting goods stores and the backs of local fans,” writes the New York Times’ Colin Moynihan, who happened to stop by the same Herald Square Modell’s your MetroCard-wielding editor visited yesterday afternoon.

Unlike Moynihan and the Gang Green-infected hordes shelling out $80 for a Favre replica, I had another garment in mind.  And trust me, there’s no rush on the shirt shown above.
